With normalcy fast returning to the communal-violence hit Kishtwar and Poonch districts, curfew was on Wednesday lifted after no untoward incident was reported during the past 24 hours.

Life has already returned to normal in Jammu and other districts, which witnessed prolonged unrest in the wake of the Amarnath land transfer row.

Meanwhile, the Shri Amarnath Yatra Sangharsh Samiti (SAYSS) has demanded a probe into communal violence in Poonch district.

"Those found guilty should be punished for triggering communal violence," SAYSS spokesman Narinder Singh said, adding that the Samiti has asked the authorities to take measures to instill confidence among the minority community in the district.
